Default Ali was a underrated movie.Great opening scene with Sam Cooke

I enjoyed it.. especially how they integrated Sam Cooke and his music into various sequences of Ali..

Will Smith is underrated.

I like Raging Bull too.

Ali was indeed a great movie. But I don't agree with what you say about Raging Bull, that was an amazing movie too.

Actually ya you are right.. the rest of the movie was good but not great.

but this opening sequence is just shockingly haunting.. It incorporates so much rich history, struggles, cultural beauty and boxing all into one time frame without using words...

Raging Bull is one of the best films ever.

Ali was a good film. Smith did a great job, and had a daunting task to portray one of the most iconic athletes in sports history.

Voight did well as Howard too. Both got Oscar nominations.

i'm in the unpopular crowd who don't ultimately enjoy Raging Bull (although it is amazing visually and Cathy Moriarty is excellent), because it's truly a movie more about Scorsese and De Niro's hangups and pretensions than it is about LaMotta. Scorsese projecting his catholicism onto Jake (a man who had no interest in God) was repellent, for example. De Niro did a fair job on catching some outward essence of Jake (for which he was praised by the man himself), but he did a poor job on catching the soul, even in the movie's most ostensibly excoriating scenes.


Ali is a movie i didn't need to see. the wealth of Ali documentary material available always rendered it redundant, for me. the real thing will always be more remarkable. i just could never get up for watching it.

The sound track was great. The movie was terribly boring and redundant. Will Smith wasnt believeable. To me eveything wa wrong down to the promotion. Will just wasnt the guy at the end of the day.
